So you want a stately feel without losing the buzz and convenience of a London location? Look no further than 29 Portland Place - an imposing Grade II-listed Georgian building positioned halfway between Oxford Circus and Regent's Park.
A grand hallway with chequerboard tiling leads to a sweeping staircase. You have the choice of two splendid ballrooms, decorated in neutral creams on the ground floor and chic Wedgwood blue on the first, and featuring beautiful stucco plasterwork and elegant chandeliers.
Ceremony capacity: 100
